Swansea boss Carvalhal not expecting weakened Spurs without Kane

The competition's luster, to many, may have dulled in recent years as managers prioritise so-called bigger prizes.

His views continue to divide opinion - lifting silverware is generally accepted to be the ultimate aim of the game, and there is a commonly-held belief that success breeds further success.

Arnason, who hails from Iceland, was late to take an interest in the beautiful game.

"That is in society, not just football". "Maybe we didn't deserve to win".

Occupying the centre-half positions for Pochettino's side will be youngster Juan Foyth, who has been a regular for the cup fixtures, alongside the experienced head of Jan Vertonghen.

Mauricio Pochettino understands that Tottenham fans are desperate to win a trophy.

His first live match was Tottenham's goalless draw with Manchester City on the opening day of the 2010-11 season.

To Pochettino, the process and the stability of what has been built is all important. They have nonetheless lost five of their last nine matches in all competitions.

The gaffer believes it's as important to build a strong squad like a family. He insists that only winning the Premier League or the Champions League would make a material difference to the mentality of his players. Toby Alderweireld also remains sidelined for the North Londoners while Dele Alli and Danny Rose are also doubtful and will undergo late fitness tests before the game.

Kieran Trippier, Son Heung-Min and Michel Vorm were the other three players to come into an imposing side that ultimately triumphed 6-0, at home against a League One side. Despite their limited resources, how the former Espanyol manager has turned the fortunes of the club is extremely commendable.

Although many teams league form dips when they have a prosperous cup run, we can't talk about the cup's effect on league form without mentioning Swansea City.

Swansea City's Tammy Abraham has charged his teammates to give their best when they clash with Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's FA Cup quarterfinal encounter.

Tottenham will be aiming to at least finish in the top four this season as they look to bring Champions League football to their brand new stadium for next term. Swansea are fighting for survival in the Premier League, Carlos Carvalhal has done a great job and it will be tough again.

Mohamed Salah and Liverpool will expect to get back to winning ways against Watford.

He added: "Everyone loves The FA Cup".

However, if it changes league form or not, one would like to think the magic of the cup is still alive and kicking and that people love nothing more than a cup upset.

'We knew Messi is a very good player and he can make the difference at any point. Once they get to that stage, their first major trophy in ten years will be a real possibility.
